Beautiful parks require a little dirty work!APRC manages 18 parks, 41 miles of trails, a golf course, multiple open spaces and recreational facilities in Ashland. Because APRC heavily restricts use of synthetic pesticides on parkland, it asks Ashland individuals, neighborhood groups and businesses to help maintain parks, trails and ball fields through its “Adopt-a-Park” Program.
Get involved, show community pride and have fun—all at the same time! It’s easy to do… simply commit to four cleanups a year and APRC will provide training, tools and recognition of your hard work.
